De La Espada

De La Espada (2013)
Dir: Juriaan Booij

De La Espada opened the doors to their factory for the first time to tell the story of their craft, through the eyes and skilful hand of acclaimed Dutch filmmaker, Juriaan Booij - this score was commissioned to offer thoughtful, classic instrumentals layered with ambient sounds picked from the factory floor; the clicks of the machinery or the creak of the tightening clamps are repeated to build an engaging rhythm that pulls the viewer closer to the action, reflecting the fact that De La Espada's modern craftsmanship is about skilfully blending man with a new generation of machines that are driven by computers...a blend of the analogue and digital worlds.
